Background: 

Jason Nordhaus is an assistant professor of physics at the National Institute for the Deaf (NTID) at Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) since fall 2014. Jason joined the CCRG as a NSF Astronomy and Astrophysics Postdoctoral Fellow  (AAPF), NSF-AST-1102738 in 2011, and is currently one of the core faculty of the center. Prior to joining RIT, Jason worked as a theoretical astrophysicist in the Department of Astrophysical Sciences at Princeton University.  His research interests include the evolution and dynamics of magnetic fields in evolved stars, close binary interactions, core-collapse supernovae, nucleosynthesis in RGB/AGB stars, and binary-induced shaping of planetary nebulae. Jason is fluent in American Sign Language (ASL) and works to expand opportunities for deaf and hard-of-hearing students in astrophysics.
